Welcome to a new year!
I am looking forward to having your child in my class this year. We will operate as a classroom team; respecting others, their opinions, and working together in small learning groups. There will be many opportunities for discussion and sharing. Making mistakes is always allowed! It is one of the best ways to learn.
On a personal note, I am a Native Texan. I taught for six years in Greenville, Texas in a 3rd grade classroom. I moved to Florida in 2002. This year will begin my 17th year in the Marion County School District. I have experience in grades K - 5. I also have been a part of many different programs such as Learning Community classroom, Project Child, and Co-Teaching. This year I have the pleasure of teaming with Mrs. Grace, who will teach the Language Arts curriculum as well as social studies. I will teach mathematics, and science . I was selected as Teacher Of The Year in the 2010 school year. Each of these experiences has provided me with many rich experiences that I utilize in my current assignment. Teaching is my passion! Each day I am here is a day that I have the privilege to live my dream!
On a personal note, I love my two fur babies, Taz and Tiger. I have three adult children and 5 grandchildren. I like to go to the movies, eat out a new restraunts, go to the beach, and bicycling. I am a bit of a dare devil. I have bunge jumped, swam with dolphins, Zip Lined, and can hardley wait to Sky Dive!
